Ronald McDonald House Birmingham provides free 'home away from home' accommodation for families who have children at Birmingham Children's Hospital. In 2013, the House helped 1,042 families stay close to their sick children.
A Ronald McDonald House is more than just a place to stay. It offers comfort, support, a safe environment where families can interact, share their experiences and know that they will always have a shoulder to cry on. We encourage their extended families to come and visit and we host events and workshops to keep them strong and hopeful, such as 'Waffle Wednesdays'.
The House has communal lounges, kitchens, dining areas, playrooms and laundry facilities.

"It really is the worst feeling, not knowing what is wrong with your baby. It was a massive shock to realise that Wilf had something which couldn't be fixed. Because it took so long to get a diagnosis and being in hospital so far from home, we really can't imagine how we would have coped without the help of Ronald McDonald House Birmingham. For nine months they enabled us to stay close to Wilf when he really needed us."
Jo Matthews, Wilf's mum
